As I am vegetarian, finding foods with enough iron in them can be challenging. When I heard about the iron content in Kale, I literally rushed out and bought it!
Kale has even more iron in beef and more calcium than milk! Kale also contains: vitamin C (good for your immune system and metabolism), vitamin A (this is good for your vision and your skin), vitamin K (good for preventing against certain cancers) as well as potassium.
I tend to eat a small bowl of raw kale everyday. My mum prefers to boil it, but I believe that eating it raw will preserve the vitamins! You can also add it to smoothies or juices.
I didn't take to the taste of kale at first - I was forcing myself to eat it because of the benefits. After a few weeks, my taste buds became 'acquired' to the taste of kale and now I crave the taste of kale!
What I have noticed since consuming kale everyday:
- My skin has improved - less breakouts and it seems to glow more :)
- My energy levels have increased - this is very important as I tend to work long hours, and I need as much energy as possible!
I recommend kale to anyone who wants to improve their skin and overall health! A bag of curly kale only costs £1 at my local Tescos!
Have you ever tried Kale?
